A handler with a massive forehand and a variety of over-the-top throws, Kevin Terry looks to lead the Rumble offense.
Though his skills aren’t limited to offense. Expect to see Terry use his handler instincts and nimble hands to make some D’s.
Terry was first introduced to Ultimate in 2003 when he started playing pick-up with the Kansas State University Huckstables in his hometown of Manhattan, Kansas, nicknamed “The Little Apple.”
A decade later, he finds himself in the Big Apple playing with New York’s first professional Ultimate team. “I hope to represent New York as well as I can, bringing the camaraderie, sportsmanship, and competitive grit I love about Ultimate to the new league and taking the field with a bunch of great teammates, old and new.”
Terry’s found success as both a player and a leader. After four years playing for the University of Minnesota’s Grey Duck, Terry joined Jojah at the University of Georgia as a grad student. As a player and coach, he led the team to Nationals in two consecutive years (2009-10).
Terry continued his Ultimate playing career in New York with the Pride of New York and 7Express, and this year he’ll coach the Stuyvesant High School Varsity Girls Ultimate Team.
Head Coach Daniel Quaranta knows that he’s got a special player on hand. “Kevin Terry provides a unique skill set which allows him to dominate stretches of points single handedly,” says Quaranta. “Whether we play him on offense or defense, I expect big things from Kevin this season.”
